PNWA 2021

Three days of virtual writer’s conference. Looking forward to pitching another novel that is running around in my mind. It will be a novella, a mystery. While Zoom conferences are just not the same feeling as attending in person, they do re-invigorate you and keep you motivated to write.

This year, I was able to submit an unpublished manuscript to their annual writer’s contest. While I did not rank high enough to be a Finalist, the reviewers provided great ideas for improving the story with the biggest change being to withdraw it from YA (oung Adult) genre and publish it in Mainstream Fiction – Adventure Thriller. With three previous novels published in Mainstream Fiction, I guess that is where I belong as an author.
